Tonight was my first night of serious study in quantum mechanics. I had put off studying it until after I had mastered the other areas of physics which came before. I didn’t want to jump into something that complicated without first being well versed in everything prior. But I was finally ready. Ready enough anyways. After reading Feynman explain the experiments performed, I closed the book, sat back in my chair, then found myself blankly staring at the wall thinking, “Wow… that’s… unexpected.”
I have no idea what to think of it. No idea. But there is something about all of it which is very inviting to me. Strange to think that varying degrees of uncertainty is a fundamental law of nature.
I understood the uncertainty principle within the context of the double-slit experiment, but applying that to everyday life would be… well… I don’t know yet. I don’t know what it all means for the everyday world I see around me. I’ll have to spend some serious time thinking it over.
